Winter wetness

Recommended Posts

Is the idea of keeping temperate carnivores less wet in Winter for any real biological reason (I assume most northern bogs are at their most flooded in Winter; they are in the UK), or is is for horticultural reasons so plants are easier to handle and it keeps fungal diseases down?

2nd the previous comments.  When I first had a greenhouse used to heat it and keep the CPs wet - botrytis heaven! Struggled to control it each winter.  Now I barely heat  (frost free only) and keep the plants just damp and not a sign.  I also have a lot of plants outside, some in deep troughs so the water can be over the top of the pots at time (sarra). This causes no problems at all.
